Crock Pot Taco Soup with Avocado {Little Leopard Book}

I took the recipe and gave it a slightly spicy kick. (We tend to keep things on the mild side in the Bond household for my little mild Momma!)

Homemade Taco Soup

This recipe is so easy to make! You simply place ground beef and onions, a few cans of beans, tomatoes and such in a crock-pot and let it cook all day.

You will only need about half of the seasoning for this recipe, so place the rest in a small plastic container or plastic baggie and save for your next taco night!

Next, add the ground beef, onions and taco seasoning to the crock pot. Stir to combine.

Gameday Grub

Saturday I had the great honor of hosting more than 20 Oklahoma peeps at my house in LA for the OU vs Florida State game!!!  In case you live under a rock (or aren’t a football fan) OU was victorious 23-13 and celebration was not lacking at my house!

Beverages were spilled, cheerleading uniforms were worn, country music was played and best of all… food was eaten!  Now there are upsides and downsides of being a food blogger!

Upsides: people come to me for recipe ideas (I love giving advice!) and I get to come up with new recipes to put on LLB. Downsides: I put a lot of pressure on myself to come up with an amazing menu for every event or dinner and I must execute it to perfection!

On Thursday I began my search for the perfect menu for Saturday. Trying to feed that many hungry Sooner fans with delicious, amazing food that can be prepared before game time… a little tricky! My food is important, but there was no way I was missing one minute of this game!  So here it is, the perfect “Gameday Grub” menu:

homemade taco seasoning, taco soup, spicy soup, avocado taco soup, recipes, food, ground beef taco soup, crock pot taco soup, crock pot recipes

Buffalo dip, chicken dip, blue cheese, cream cheese, buffalo chicken, recipe, appetizer

  • Pumpkin Cupcakes

pumpkin cupcakes, game day cupcakes, cream cheese frosting, football cupcakes, game day dessert, recipes, food

sloppy joes, gourmet sloppy joes, homemade sloppy joes, sloppy joe sliders, crispy onion sloppy joes, crockpot sloppy joes, slow cooker sloppy joes, gameday grub, recipes, food

Somehow I made all of this happen, while taking pictures along the way and was on the couch, beverage in hand, ready for the game at kick-off!

I hope this post helped you get some great ideas for your “Gameday Grub”!!!
